On a bright sun warm sun shiny day, we went to Bukit Layang-layang, Pasir Gudang, Johor Bahru, Malaysia to witness the International Kite Festival 2008 which is held from 19-24 February 2008. It is the last day and the park was still flooded with people and vehicles parking alongside it. Various activities were organized to attract local and international visitors. This is the second time I brought my family to the kite festival.
A giant Egypt pharaoh kite flew in the air. The contestant is from USA.
That’s the contestant pulling his pharaoh on the dry yellowish grass. The rain has not hit Pasir Gudang for about 1 month.
Some of the kites flying in the light beautiful blue sky
Spiderman kite. My son could not resist to have this one. So, we bought it for him for MYR5/piece (string included).
Some of the goods sold at the festival. Among them are hats and kid’s stuff.
Paint ball field is also available. However, when we came, the battle have not yet begin.
Some small toy cars are up for sale as well. They cost MYR4 each. But you can get 3 for MYR10. I’m not sure about the quality…
Cheap jeweleries are also sold here. Most of them comes from China.
Some other kite design up for grab.
A bunch of fast food restaurant also participated in the kite festival. Among them are Kentucky Friend Chicken, Pizza Hut and Ayamas. Well, they all come from the same mother company!
The shade prepared for visitors to enjoy the international kite show.
What is this? I’m not sure. Maybe it’s a type of kite as well…
Me with that mini umbrella hat. That cost us only MYR 5. It’s cool under that “umbre-hat” .
Me playing with my kids. There are hundreds of other kite enthusiast playing around huge park.
I told you there are a lot of kites there…
I don’t know whether a similar international kite festival is held in other places or not? But, it is definitely an annual event in Johor Bahru. If you miss this, you can come here again next year. It’s really fantastic but it’s hot (warm).
